On Cloud 9- Feel Proud you are a Woman

On Cloud 9- Feel Proud you are a Woman by Suresh Padmanabhan 

celebrate the complete woman within

The great question that has never been answered and which I have not yet been able to answer is “What does a woman want?”—Sigmund Freud
God was working very late on a Friday. An angel came to Her and asked, “Oh! You are still working on that same model since such a long time. Why such special treatment? You created the last model in just a few days.”

She said, “This one is my masterpiece, hence it is taking time.” “What is this form going to be called?” She smiled and said, “Woman.”

“I have taken a lot of time to create her soul and her heart, in which I have poured in the essence of life.”

The angel touched the woman and asked, “She looks soft and fragile. Isn’t she weak?”
She laughed and said, “Do you think a flower is weak in comparison to a rock?”

“No, the flower has its own strength and grandeur. The rock is stronger than the flower only in terms of its crushing abilities. The
flower is strong in its own delicate beauty.”

On Cloud 9- Who am I? Where am I going?

On Cloud 9- Who am I? Where am I going? by Suresh Padmanabhan

celebrate the complete woman within  There is a wonderful dialogue in the masterpiece book Alice in Wonderland which goes on like this:

“Who are YOU?” said the Caterpillar.

This was not an encouraging opening for a conversation. Alice replied, rather shyly, “I…I hardly know, sir, just at present…at least I know who I WAS when I got up this morning, but I think I must have changed several times since then.”

On Cloud 9 – Celebrate with complete woman within

On Cloud 9 – Celebrate with complete woman within by Suresh Padmanabhan and Shan Chavan

Whoever cannot find a temple in his heart, the same can never find his heart in any temple. —The Book of Mirdad, Mikhail Naimy
“On cloud 9” means to be in a state of elated bliss and ecstasy. Women by nature are like that, flying like a butterfly in the land of paradise. Given a choice, they would like to be a permanent resident in the land of fantasy. They are pulled down to the Earth to face some hard realities of life. It is like crash landing on a bed of thorns. No one likes it. At times, the existence pushes one to the wall and it is during these times, storms brew in the mind. One is pushed and pulled by the vagaries of life. And the best solution is to know “who you are”.

Attract Money- Learning from a 3000 year old story

Attract Money- Learning from a 3000 year old story- Suresh Padmanabhan

There is one story in childhood which I heard from my Grandmother. This story is from the popular Aesop’s Fables, credited to Aesop a slave and a story teller who lived in Greece about 620 and 560 BCE. This story hence is as old as 3000 years.

Read the story first, then we will speak about Money.

THE GRAPES ARE SOUR from The Aesop’s Fables

Once upon a time, there was this hungry fox who was roaming around here and there searching for food. Because of hunger, he was feeling weak and tired. Fortunately, he came to a garden where he saw a grape-vine laden with bunches of juicy grapes.

The fox looked at the grapes, with its mouth watering and longing eyes. He jumped high to grab the grapes, but as the bunches were high, failed miserably. So he sat down for a while to take some rest. On feeling refreshed, he jumped again as high as he could, to get at the grapes. But he failed this time too. He tried quite a number of times but failed each time.

Forced to give, he just walked away and instead of accepting his failure, he remarked “the grapes are sour”

Handling Money- Learning from the Titanic (Part 2)

Handling Money- Learning from the Titanic by Suresh Padmanabhan (Part 2)

Late on the night of April 14, 1912, the Titanic, considered as one of the strongest ships every built sank in a horribly tragic way. A total of 1,523 lives were lost when the Titanic ship sank like a pack of cards, beneath the ice cold waters of the Atlantic.

When the Titanic was sinking there was a scramble for the lifeboats which were in shortage. In each person’s mind there was only one thought- to escape to safety no matter what.

When economies and countries collapse the same happens. Each and everyone want to jump off. The high, the mighty and the men in power will be the first to escape. They will be hurt the least because they have money and power. But what about the poor individual?

It is prudent to protect your own Money Interest. Always have a back- up plan of what will happen to you or your family, if the worst happens.
